Very nice little beach with a parrot in cantine up the stairs. If you want to eat something look for nearby taverns, unless you're really hungry.

The crystalline sea waters, are an interesting experience, since the beach has no place to change clothes, only sun beds. The water was mostly cold, with waves and rocks, but had sulphur and some places , near the rocks, it was warmer.

We kept returning to this beach - it secluded, lovely and clean. Offers sunbeams and parasols. It lives up to it's name - it smells quite strongly of sulphur..

We got there by scooter from Laganas! When we arrived, we found a breathtaking view over the beach and the crystal clear sea. I would recommend to take some protective shoes to walk in the sea as there are little stones and not soft sand!...More

Visited here on way to Blue Caves. Got parked easily thanks to a lovely gentleman who sorts out the visitor parking ensuring that people park considerately! Walked down and found a space on the beach or you can hire sun beds for about 7 euro...More

Stopped here on our way back from the shipwreck and the blue caves. Think it is a little bit overrated. Because of the sulfur it smells like rotten eggs (which is off course normal) and since it is a small beach is was crowded. Although...More

Small beach, not sunny at the morning. Smelly, water is extremely cold. Good for a quick view or swim, definitely not for all day stay.
